A Simple Trick Makes These 3D Gifs Pop Out Of The Screen At You

By • Feb 17th, 2014 • Category: Art, Latest Posts, Optical Illusions, Video

A new trick has been circulating among gif creators that allows them to create animated images with a convincing 3D aspect. The trick is simple but deceptive – these gifs’ creators use white lines to split the images into 3 panels. That way, elements of the animated images can “pop” out of the frame in front of the white lines and toward the viewer.

Ramon Bruin (previously written about here and here) keeps on astonishing us with his realistic 3D pictures. We’d like to show you some of the latest drawings of our favorite Dutch artist. In this highly talented man’s hands, a sheet of white paper and a regular pencil become powerful tools used to play tricks on our eyes. It’s amazing how various animals and insects come to life through Bruin’s optical illusions.

Singaporean artist Keng Lye has combined beauty and illusion in a masterful way in this amazing work depicting a small octopus in a bowl. The photos look incredibly life-like, as if it’s a real, squirming, writhing octopus. Keng Lye achieves this beautiful effect by painting delicate paintings onto layer upon layer of crystal-clear resin. As the layers, and the painting, grow, the octopus gains depth and appears to be partially submerged.

Italian illustrator Alessandro Diddi erases the line between fiction and reality and makes his 3D drawings leap out of the sheet of paper. Besides light and shadow effects, Alessandro also uses various props, his own hands and even the very pencil he draws with to make his anamorphic drawings come alive when viewed from a certain angle.

Do you remember Ramon Bruin and his incredible 3d pencil art we wrote about last year? A mostly self-taught artist from the Netherlands keeps developing his anamorphic techniques and now has a whole bunch of new 3D optical illusions.

Photorealistic 3D Paintings of Sea Creatures by Keng Lye

By • Apr 17th, 2013 • Category: Animals, Art, Latest Posts, Optical Illusions, Painting

The work of Singapore-based artist Keng Lye could easily pass for some nice photos of sea life – except that they’re not photos, but three dimensional photorealistic paintings! Keng achieves the 3d effect similarly to 3d printer – he pours a layer of resin into a bowl and paints it with acrylics, layer by layer revealing more and more of each creature. His painting technique is almost the same as Riusuke Fukahori’s, but Keng found a new twist to it – he made his creations protrude from the surface.

You may think you’re looking at a bizarre painting, but look closer, and you’ll realize that it’s actually an anamorphic 3D sculpture. The massive portrait of Malian actor Sotigui Kouyaté is the latest work of French artist Bernard Pras. It was created entirely out of recycled materials such as clothes and rags, wood, glass lanterns, dishes, rubber and other trash Bernard would gather from the installation site.

Even though Ramon Bruin has a degree in airbrushing, it’s his other skill that made our jaws drop. A Netherlands-based artist shows demonstrates how well he’s mastered the art of 3D illusions, all drawn by pencil. As he puts it, trying photo-realism was just another way for him to push his boundaries and add another technique to his portfolio.

Hiding in the last row of a boring class in high school shouldn’t always be regarded as slacking. What once started of as fooling around with Photoshop and 3D Max in the back of AutoCAD class, has now developed into signature style that 30-year-old digital artist Michael Oswald describes as ‘photo manipulation on steroids’.

Do you remember the amazing 3D Pencil Drawings by 17 Year Old Fredo we’ve shown you last year? Well, don’t be deceived, this is not another collection of his work. The sketches below are all drawn by the 21-year-old Nagai Hideyuki from Japan. Inspired by British 3D street artist Julian Beever, Hide uses the same projection technique called anamorphosis which allows to create 3D illusion when viewed from the correct angle.

Hand Drawn Animated Gifs by Dain Fagerholm

By • Apr 24th, 2012 • Category: Art, Latest Posts

Do you remember Jamie Beck and Kevin Burg who creatively used animated GIFs to create so-called cinemagraphs? Seattle-based illustrator Dain Fagerholm also adopted animated GIF technology to make his hand drawn monsters come to life. However, this time GIFs were used to create a cool 3-D effect. Technique is one thing, but what really catches my attention is the cuteness of Dain’s illustrations. It seems that childhood book illustrations have suddenly come to life.

Swiss artist Felice Varini has been creating illusions of flat graphics superimposed on three dimensional spaces since 1979 using the same eye-deceiving technique called anamorphosis. The complete shapes can only be seen when viewed at certain angles, otherwise the viewer will only see some random broken pieces.
